Our guest today, economics professor Sharon Poczter, is a renowned economist, researcher of financial exclusion, and self-professed Shark Tank junkie.
Sharon has recently published findings that compare the pitches of investors with their success securing funds from the sharks. Since she's always been interested in how a lack of funds can exclude certain groups from wealth and leadership, she and her team decided to analyze how women entrepreneurs on the show compared with their male counterparts.
In this episode, Sharon and I discuss her findings and the lessons that all women can take from her research. Sharon also shares how she's encouraged the women in her classes to feel more confident speaking up, and her research on financial exclusion in developing countries.
